  • My wife and I stopped at the Trap Pond State Park to do some hiking. We selected a trail that said it was 1.4 miles. Of course there was also another one by the same name which was a little longer...  more »
  • This park is a hidden gem. if you visit you will be back. We went this fall to enjoy our RV at this tranquil pond in November. The geese and other water birds were the only noises in the park...  more »
  • My husband and I wore driving by and decided to stopp to check the park out. I'm giving a 5 star even though there isn't a beach and no swimming is allowed in the lake. There are kayaks, paddle board, boat, etc to go on the lake. Everyone is very friendly! There are lots of activities to do. We did not visit the nature center. We will definitely coming back.
  • I love kayaking/ canoeing here every year. Make sure to take a trip down terrapin branch. It is a narrow passageway through the cypress trees. Such a beautiful place to see all the handiwork of God!
